those look closer to the temps i get.

Core temp is more stable, the package temp jumps around all day, whereas core seems to be an average of what most of cores are doing, more representative I feel.

I wonder if cams clock speed is accurate. There are only 2 apps I know of that get it right, HWINFO and Ryzen Master. rest think its always running faster than it really is. What does task manager show?
this is old but both can't be accurate

Ryzen master shows 1ghz
Task manager 4ghz
at the same time

HWINFO average effective clock is as close to Ryzen master as any can get. AMD don't share how they calculate CPU speed.

They look about right, since Ryzen CPU hardly ever stay same temp due to constantly waking cores and then rushing to idle. MY 3600xt ranges from 42 to 50 all day on the package temps, cores are lower. That is with an AIO.

I wonder if cam tracks core temps or package temps
might be more accurate - https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/how-to-use-hwinfo-to-track-sensor-values-on-ryzen.3693704/
hey I just checked hwinfo, it appears that cam is only showing cpu package temp

Hello everyone, im wondering if my idle temps are to high for my ryzen 9 5900x?
would appreciate some help as soon as possible, it is brand new, installed properly, with a brand new Nzxt kraken Z63 aio cooler on it
the idle temps range from 40-55, with no cpu load. gaming temps range from 55-75.

current temp with no load on it

Normal for Ryzen, they have a very sensitive boost algorithm which causes them to react aggressively to some light loads, even potentially your monitoring tool. As such their idle temps tend to be higher than Intel's. Nothing to be concerned about though.

That's Zen 2 but applies to Zen 3 as well.
